- All case plans are reviewed at regular intervals in an effort to ensure that case management for the family is comprehensive in scope, that children receive proper care, and that permanency plans are accomplished in a timely manner. Social workers need to be familiar with case review requirements for different types of case situations.
- Case review requirements may differ depending upon the following or other factors:
- Whether the case originated in CPS, FRS, or CWS.
- Whether children are in an in-home or out-of-home care situation.
- Whether there is court involvement.
- Whether the child is a Native American/Alaskan Native child.
- Whether the child is in a rehabilitative service placement.
- Whether the case plan specifies adoption as the permanency plan.
